Just finished my first set of cutting boards, real simple, all for Christmas gifts. I got the wood from a local mill here in VA. Please comment and give advice. I used some mineral oil (food grade) from Woodcrafters and the mill is Local Wood (in VA).

I’m also a NoVa woodworker and love making a cutting board as much as the next guy. Ironically I drove past Local Wood this past Saturday on my way out to Winchester and spotted the building. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to stop on my way home. I’ll make sure to check it out one day. Thanks for the tip.

Congrats on the cutting board success. They will make great gifts.

Try Walmart for inexpensive mineral oil. It is in the “laxative” section of the drug dept.

Keep up the good work.

Hokie1 is right, mineral oil is the same and cheaper. You did a great job on your CB’s. Now you should try an Endgrain board.
